Noah’s Fat Lip

Last week, Noah was running through the kitchen and accidentally tripped, biting his lip on the way down.  It’s incredible that it took Noah 18 months to bleed for the first time.  I’m sure this will be the first of many boo boos.  Oh, and no teeth were lost in the making of these pictures ;)





The cute thing is that through the crying and the blood, Noah was still cocking his head for me to sing to him :)  Entertain me!

Mommy’s new wheels!

To help me get around when I go to doctor visits, I got a wheelchair.  The first time Noah saw it was after school on Tuesday.  He LOVES to push it around!

Playing around



So focused!


For the sake of the paint on our walls, we had to discourage him from pushing it around.  Onto something else, Noah!

A good first day

For the first couple hours, Noah had a little trouble adjusting to his first day of school.  But by the time we went to pick him up, he had completely settled in.  They even said he napped! Part of the day was Water Fun where the kids got to play outside in the sprinkler; I think that was Noah’s turning point :)

I’m ready to push my brothers around in a stroller!



I can’t wait to come back again!


(Notice his clothes changed since this morning?  He REALLY had fun during Water Fun!)

School Days

Now that I’m on bed rest and not able to play with Noah, we’ve enrolled him in daycare/preschool to keep him occupied on certain days.  Well, today was his first day!  Noah was happy as can be!

I’m ready to go make some new friends!!  Go rest, Mommy!


More later on how his first day went…

Summer fun!

Grandma Linda was able to extend her visit a few days to help us out.  This was great because she had some extra time to take Noah to the pool!


IMG_4305  Hey, I see my mom!  I think she needs a cup of water…



Noah found a wagon sitting by the side of the pool and had a lot of fun with it.








Noah’s making a new friend (Noah stole his ball and this little boy wants it back!)


Noah had so much fun with Grandma Linda.  He even walked under the sprinkler on his own!  He was a little disoriented after he did, but he’s getting more and more brave every time!

Come back soon, please!

Because I was unexpectedly admitted to the hospital after a doctor’s visit on Friday, it was such a blessing that the Grammas and Papa Joe were here to help us take care of Noah.  Noah was definitely bummed when they had to leave!

Bye, Papa Joe!  Come back soon!

Dinner at Vinny’s

On the first night of their visit, Great Grandma treated us all to a yummy Italian dinner at Vinny’s.  We ordered Noah a baked pasta dish from the kid’s menu.  The plate was huge, and he ate every last bite (plus a garlic roll and mozzarella stick!)!!


IMG_4279 I hope no one is expecting me to share this!

(This is just a portion of what he ate – I kept dishing it out to the small plate, thinking he would never eat it all)


IMG_4277 Yum!

A visit from the Grammas (and Papa Joe)

Last week, Noah had some very special visitors:  Grandma Linda, Papa Joe and Great Grandma came down from Ohio for the weekend.  Noah loved showing off his pool:

 IMG_4243 Noah loves to splash water on himself, but he’s always surprised!



Mom, get a little closer so I can pour this on you!

Running away from the sprinkler


This is not torture – he asked Daddy to do it!


Still surprised, though!


I’m all wet!


Grandma Linda, Papa Joe and Great Grandma


More tomorrow on their very special visit…
